Bishop Frank J. Caggiano invites the faithful to join together on Sundays and Tuesdays in the Summer to pray the Rosary as we pray for an end to the pandemic and for our country.
According to Dr. Patrick Donovan, Director of the diocesan Leadership Institute, there will be many opportunities to connect to the prayer gathering. Options for joining include Zoom, YouTube Live, or by Phone.
Earlier this year, Archbishop Jose H. Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, announced that the U.S. bishops will join the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops on May 1 in consecrating the two nations to the care of the Blessed Mother under the title “Mary, Mother of the Church.”
“This will give the church the occasion to pray for Our Lady’s continued protection of the vulnerable, healing of the unwell and wisdom for those who work to cure this terrible virus,” said Archbishop Gomez in a letter to the U.S. bishops. Each year, the church seeks the special intercession of the Mother of God during the month of May.
“This year, we seek the assistance of Our Lady all the more earnestly as we face together the effects of the global pandemic,” he said.
This consecration reaffirms the bishops’ previous consecrations of the United States to Mary.
